About Cardiff Airport and Bro Tathan Enterprise Zone

About Cardiff Airport and Bro Tathan Enterprise Zone Banner

The area’s 50+-year aerospace and defence heritage give this Enterprise Zone the facilities, skills, experience and local supply chain that make for a truly leading location within the UK aerospace industry.

Three distinct sites in the Zone offer a range of facilities and accommodation:

Cardiff Airport is fully within the Zone and serves passengers and freight worldwide and its 2,392m (7847 feet) runway can accommodate any aircraft, including the A380.

Over 40 direct destinations - including three European hub airports - make the site ideal not only for Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) operations, storage and salvage businesses and cargo operations but for any business with a significant international dimension.

Together with adjoining development land, the site represents further opportunity for aerospace-related investment, while Cardiff Airport is committed to continuing to grow passenger numbers and expand routes.


Bro Tathan Business Park is an existing business park providing approximately 1.6 million sq ft of employment floor space and home to major occupiers including Aston Martin Lagonda, eCube Solutions and Bristow Helicopters.

Bro Tathan is embarking on the next phase in its exciting evolution to create a ground breaking destination for business offering a range of development and occupational opportunities.

Arranged over a site of approximately 1,200 acres together with its own fully operational runway, Bro Tathan is strategically located within the Cardiff Airport and Bro Tathan Enterprise Zone, 5 miles from Cardiff Airport and within easy reach of the M4 motorway and major UK cities.


At the Gateway Development Zone, next to the airport, there is development land and early plans to develop an Airport City comprising high quality offices as well as education, training and leisure facilities.
